A cool and understated Day-Date with plenty of ice on the cake.A white gold Day-Date is an under the radar take on the flashy man’s watch. At first glance it may pass as stainless steel but you’ll definitely feel the heft and luxurious feel of a gold Rolex on the wrist.This ref. 18239 combines the 36mm solid white gold case, fluted bezel, matching white gold President bracelet, and classic silvered dial. However, it adds a bit of pizzazz to that dial with the inclusion of factory set brilliant-cut hour markers and baguette-cut markers on 6 and 9 o'clock positions.This watch dates back to 1996 and is powered by the improved caliber 3155 automatic movement with a handy double quickset function to independently set the date and day discs. The watch is in excellent condition, with a thick case and tight bracelet.
Rolex Day-DateIn 1956, Rolex introduced one the most iconic watches ever made: the Day-Date. The Day-Date was the first waterproof self-winding chronometer certified wristwatch with a day and date function. And to top it off, it was only available in gold or platinum! Rolex also designed a new three-link bracelet, known as the ‘President,’ to pair with this special watch. With exception of the most modern executions, the Day-Date comes exclusively in a 36mm case.Reference 182xxThe 182xxx series Day-Dates were introduced in 1989 and shepherded the line in the modern-era. While the previous 18xxx series Day-Date from 1978 had already introduced a single quickset function for the quick adjustment of the date as well as a sturdy sapphire crystal, the 182xx series saw the unveiling of the new caliber 3155 movement with a double quickset function. This new movement finally allowed all the functions of the watch (time, date, and day) to be adjusted quickly and conveniently through different positions of the crown.
